What pink shrub would you suggest to plant together with Hebe for a walkway? There are white million bells there, but I need three additional shrubs as an accent.

Here are a few plants to consider:
Pink Spires Clethra (Clethra alnifolia 'Pink Spires')
An attractive rounded to spreading shrub. Flowering in late summer, pink to rose buds open to sweetly fragrant, pink flowers. Tolerant of salty conditions and it is very pest free. Height 4-6', Spread 3-5'

Cameo Flowering quince
Beautiful, double peach flowers in spring. Compact, spreading shrubs, ideally suited for a low border or hedge. A stunning flower display in spring. The reddish yellow fruit, ripening in fall, can be used for preserves and jellies. Height 2-4', Spread 3-5'

Carefree Delight Rose
An everblooming rose with petite, single, pink flowers throughout the season. Height 3-4', Spread 3-4'

Anthony Waterer Spirea (Spiraea x bumalda 'Anthony Waterer')
Bright rose-pink flowers from June to September. Height 2-3', Spread 2-4'
